Welcome to the first newsletter for 2020.
I am proud of the way students have returned ready to begin another year at Long Street Primary. Congratulations to Long Street staff for the work they completed during the Christmas break ready for 2020.
This year we welcome new staff to Long Street and wish them well in the work they will perform.
This year’s AGM will be held on Monday 24th February in the STEM Learning Centre. The meeting will begin at 6:00pm where all staff will be introduced to the school community. If you would like to nominate for this year’s council please complete a nomination form and return it to Lisette at the front desk. Nomination forms are available from the front desk. All members currently up for renewing their membership must also complete a nomination form.
This year’s focus areas on our School Improvement Plan are Reading and Writing. There are a number of reasons based on this decision. The main reason is the evidence we have collected through testing students. There are numerous strategies that underpin this work. These are documented and will be placed on the school's website in due course.
Other learning areas still remain priorities within the school but are not published in the Site Improvement Plan.
I am currently waiting on our site's Annual Report to be returned from Central Office. This will also be published on the school’s website as soon as possible.
